Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express

Adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig

Running Time: 2 Hours and 15 Minutes (including a 15 Minute Intermission)

It’s 1934, just after midnight, and a snowstorm has stopped the opulent Orient Express sleeper train in its tracks. A wealthy American businessman is discovered dead, and the brilliant and beautifully mustachioed Hercule Poirot must solve the mystery before the murderer strikes again. Agatha Christie’s plot-twisting masterpiece takes audiences on a suspenseful thrill ride that Broadway World calls, “Everything you could want – broadly drawn characters, exotic settings and a spectacular murder.”

"Agatha Christie's Murder On The Orient Express" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
